I started off making a bit of a steampunky tag but got totally sidetracked playing with stampbord and inks. My original tag still isn't finished but I'm quite pleased with my alternative. I've used a Kaleidacolour ink pad (Calypso) to make the background and overstamped with a Creative Expressions collage stamp in the same colours then sprayed it to blend the colours. Next I stamped a crackle background around the edges and a butterfly wing in black. Then the letters and edges were stamped and embossed in gold. The little stamp board square is coloured with the same inks, stamped with the butterfly wing and triple embossed with a little gem added to the hot UTEE. The butterfly is from the same CE themeplate, embossed in gold on acetate and I used variegated gold leaf on the back. I added some more little gems and some rainbow fibres to finish off
I'm also entering this tag in Hels' Sunday Stamper challenge which is 'Rhinestone Cowboy' and Charisma Cardz challenge which is 'Metal Mickey'
Why is whenever I get up really early I end up faffing around in my craft room and make myself late for work lol? Today is no exception so I better get my skates on and go earn a crust
Thanks for looking
